A Galaxy Of Characters

January 23, 1994

It's the dawn of the Third Age of Mankind, a decade after the Earth/Minbari war that nearly destroyed humanity. The Babylon Project was created to establish peace among earthlings and aliens. The first three Babylon stations were sabotaged and destroyed. The fourth one disappeared without a trace. Babylon 5, which is under the jurisdiction of the Earth Alliance, has survived for two years.

Who are its architects, commanders and foes?

Commander Jeffrey Sinclair (Michael O'Hare): The reluctant hero of the Earth Alliance must maintain peace among the once-warring interstellar governments.

Talia Winters (Andrea Thompson): A telepath who uses her powers to negotiate business deals.

Ambassador G'Kar (Andreas Katsulas): The calculating, reptilian-appearing leader of the aggressive Narn Regime.

Ambassador Londo Mollari (Peter Jurasik): The rather excessive representative of the once- powerful Centauri Republic.

Lt. Col. Susan Ivanova (Claudia Christian): Sinclair's newly appointed second-in-command. Ambitious and no-nonsense, Ivanova oversees the space station controls.

Dr. Steven Franklin (Richard Biggs): The ship's chief medical officer who tends to the needs of the multitude of life forms inhabiting the station.

Ambassador Deleen (Mira Furlan): The stoic representative of the Minbari Federation. Once a homogenous culture, the federation is in the midst of political and social upheaval.

Security Chief Michael Garibaldi (Jerry Doyle): Sinclair's trusted protector of the ship. Garibaldi, though, has a troubled past.
